Support PRIM&R

At PRIM&R, ethics education has a direct and immediate impact on decision and action in the real world. Those we serve are on the front lines: champions of ethical research practices and subject protections, and incredibly important to both public trust and research success. Our job is to provide the programming, resources, and networks needed to ensure ethical practices in research programs.

For more than 40 years, we have led the field in providing highly acclaimed conferences and short courses, practical tools, and cutting-edge strategies to all those involved in the research enterprise. As we look forward to the next 40 years, we are eager not only to continue our work, but also to make our efforts more accessible to others. That’s where we need your help.
